Dose and Location of Irradiation Determine Survival for Patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma with Macrovascular Invasion in External Beam Radiation Therapy.

Prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with macrovascular invasion (MVI) is extremely poor. However, proper therapeutic strategies have not been established yet. The purpose of this study is to i...

The Effect of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy on Erectile Functions: A Prospective Clinical Study.

We aimed to evaluate the effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) on erectile function in patients who had no cavernosal or urethral injury by using International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) ...

Emerging Role of MRI in Radiation Therapy.

Advances in multimodality imaging, providing accurate information of the irradiated target volume and the adjacent critical structures or organs at risk (OAR), has made significant improvements in del...

External Beam Irradiation Preferentially Inhibits the Endochondral Pathway of Fracture Healing: A Rat Model.

External beam irradiation is an accepted treatment for skeletal malignancies. Radiation acts on both cancerous and normal cells and, depending on the balance of these effects, may promote or impair bo...

Evaluating the Cost-Effectiveness of Hydrogel Rectal Spacer in Prostate Cancer Radiotherapy.

A hydrogel rectal spacer (HRS) is a medical device approved by the FDA to increase the separation between the prostate and rectum. We conducted a cost-effectiveness analysis of HRS use for reduction i...

Clinical Trials [10206 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Triptorelin, Flutamide, and External-Beam Radiation Therapy or External-Beam Radiation Therapy Alone in Treating Patients With Stage II or Stage III Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Drugs, such as triptorelin and flutamide, may stop the adrenal glands from making androgens. Radiation therapy uses high...

Can Tadalafil Maintain Erectile Function In Patients Treated With Radiotherapy For Prostate Cancer?

Because of the high incidence of post-radiation erectile dysfunction (ED), up to 72% after external-beam radiotherapy, this patient category represents a most difficult therapeutic challen...

External-Beam Radiation Therapy With or Without Indinavir and Ritonavir in Treating Patients With Brain Metastases

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Indinavir and ritonavir may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth....

Proton Beam Radiation Therapy for Intraocular and Periocular Retinoblastoma

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate proton beam radiation therapy as an alternative to external photon beam irradiation in children with retinoblastoma as a means of local tumor contr...

Study of DNA Mutations in Predicting the Effect of External-Beam Radiation Therapy in Patients With Early Breast Cancer, Localized Prostate Cancer, or Gynecological Cancer

RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer. It m...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of an external beam of PROTONS as radiotherapy.

An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

Inability to achieve and maintain an erection (ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION) due to defects in the arterial blood flow to the PENIS, defect in venous occlusive function allowing blood drainage (leakage) from the erectile tissue (corpus cavernosum penis), or both.

Organs which might be damaged during exposure to a toxin or to some form of therapy. It most frequently refers to healthy organs located in the radiation field during radiation therapy.
